Sometimes the term is used as a synonym of "civil society organization" to refer to any association founded by citizens.The explanation of the term by NGO.org (the non-governmental organizations associated with the United Nations) is ambivalent. It says a NGO is any non-profit, voluntary citizens' group which is organized on a local, national or international level, but then goes on to restrict the meaning in the sense used by most English speakers and the media: Task-oriented and driven by people with a common interest, NGOs execute a variety of service and humanitarian functions, bring citizen concerns to Governments, advocate and monitor policies and encourage political participation through provision of information.NGOs are usually financed by donations, but some avoid formal funding altogether and are run primarily by volunteers.
